    I have been going to Dr Weingrad for 19 years and would not go to anyone else. I also have several family members that are also his patients. He takes the time to explain any issues you may have and tells you all the options. He’s up to date on all of the latest research and explains whichever ones...more

    The Doctor operated in an emergency situation on my wife 02/05/2018. Found Colon cancer and removed cancer. Excellent results with no complications. Also inserted a port two weeks later again with no complications. Would recommend with reserves.
